DEKRA and ADAC TCR Germany
Action-packed close-to-production racing
It is the third year for ADAC TCR Germany and the series grid is full with lots of car brands. For many young talents this is the very beginning of their career in touring car racing – and as Official Partner DEKRA is there to lend its support.
Right from the start of the championship in 2016, DEKRA has partnered with TCR Germany - and all cars spot the expert organization's logo on their livery.
Created in 2015, the TCR rules allow exciting touring car racing, with sensible budget in mind. This makes TCR Germany the perfect environment for young talents. The close-to-production race cars of Audi, Honda, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen appeal to a wide public. And with its action-packed races including wheel-to-wheel battles and trading paint the 2016-founded ADAC TCR Germany is the perfect addition to the attractive event package of ADAC GT Masters and ADAC Formula 4 – with DEKRA supporting all three series as their Official Partner.
In the 2018 season a total of 27 drivers take to the track in the highly competitive TCR series. With reigning champion Josh Files from Britain leaving for the new-for-2018 TCR Europe championship, the battle for overall glory is completely open. However, last year's runner-up Mike Halder and 2017 rookie champion Luca Engstler are more than eager to follow in File's footsteps this year.
The 2018 race calendar is seeing Halder, Engstler and their 25 competitors head to exciting destinations in Germany and in neighbouring foreign countries. The season begins at Oschersleben and comes to an end at Hockenheim. The Dutch coastal circuit Zandvoort will prove to be a special challenge for drivers as will the Sachsenring. And it is almost impossible to predict who will come out on top in the end. This is truly special about this touring car series supported by DEKRA.
And it may well have been the cause for pro football player Max Kruse to create his own race team for the 2018 ADAC TCR Germany season. Because this is what two 30-minute action-packed sprint races per weekend do to you: whet your appetite!
